Slow Cooker Spanish Beef Stew


I don't know if this it authentic to any region of Spain, but it was tasty and hearty.


It is made in a slow cooker so this dish is also very convenient.  I just put everything in the crock pot and let it do its thing for a few hours.

Caramel Brownies


It has been snowing quite heavily for about 24 hours where I live.  I have helped shovel the drive, but have been inside for most of the day.  


Days like today are the perfect type of day to bake and eat decadent baked goods like these brownies.  It is a perfect day to snuggle up with a good book and eat a brownie.

Peppermint Chocolate Pancakes with Chocolate Chips


I haven't posted for a while.  I indented to over the Christmas holidays, but other things got in the way.  Since returning back from the holidays I haven't been busy, just lazy.


Yesterday I saw Miss Saigon for the first time.  I had heard about the musical, but I was unfamiliar with the story line.  I also had never heard any of the music before yesterday.

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Caramel


Strangely enough, I made these cookies for Thanksgiving.  I did not have traditional thanksgiving food.  We ate fettuccini Alfredo and these chocolate chips cookies.


I did not want to go through all the work of preparing a traditional Thanksgiving meal, and I am glad my friends did not want to either.

Peanut Butter Cookie for one with Reese's baking cups and Reese's Pieces


It's December! I have already had my first holiday party and have another one tomorrow. I'm excited for Christmas, even if it seems like it was just Christmas.


My parents have already given me my Christmas present, although I expect I will still have something to open on Christmas morning.  I was given an electric keyboard.  They mailed it directly to me.

Pumpkin Pancakes with Chocolate Chips


It's the Christmas season! What better way to welcome in the Holidays with pumpkin pancakes?  


I feel like pumpkin pancakes are appropriate for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  The pumpkin makes perfect for Thanksgiving, and the cinnamon, ginger, and allspice make them a good fit for Christmas as well.

Chocolate Cookies with Reece's Baking Cups and Reece's Pieces Candy


The holidays are fast approaching.  Are you ready?  


I spend last Thanksgiving in Spain.  It is a pretty epic way to spend the holiday.  This year is going to be much more low key.  I am going to go hang out at a friends' house.  We are not even making thanksgiving foods.
